The Bockley Gallery brings in a little help from the Walker this week to showcase the work of Milwaukee-based artist, filmmaker, and author Sky Hopinka. Along with Hopinka’s three-channel video installation Fainting Spells at the Bockley Gallery, we’re also excited to see the free screening of five short films at the Walker Art Center’s Cinema followed by a discussion with Hopinka that will include his focus on his personal positions of indigenous homeland and landscape, and the importance of language for culture. Thursday, September 13th, 7 PM.
